Bulb Replacement

Bulb Replacement & Lighting Retrofit in Columbus, Cincinnati & Dayton, Ohio

Did you know your ballasts can restrict the flow of electricity as it goes out to a fluorescent light bulb? Ballast replacements prevent your lights from burning out and overheating. Lighting ballasts are matched specifically to the light bulb being used. Most lighting in use today falls into one of three categories. Most people have LED lighting, HID lighting or fluorescent lighting, or a combination of these three. If you’re still using HID lighting or fluorescent fixtures, it requires much more electrical maintenance than people using LED lighting, saving you money. LEDs use up to 90 percent less electricity and last up to 25 times longer than the traditional incandescent bulb. If you’re looking to upgrade to LED, we can help. We can also help if you need to install new ballasts or bulbs.

Fluorescent and HID bulbs run at a different voltage than the power company supplies. Ballasts are a type of transformer. They lower or raise the voltage to a level that specific types of bulbs can use. If you replace all of the light bulbs in a fluorescent light fixture, and they still won’t light, the ballast is usually the cause of the problem. You may need new lights for many reasons, for example, if lights are dim or flicker, lights don’t turn on or off when they should, regular light bulb burnout, cracked or burnt-out lights, light bulb explosions, the lighting color seems off, and more. If you’re experiencing any other issues, call Five Star Home Services immediately for prompt repair.

4 Common Types of Residential Lighting

At Five Star Home Services,, we can replace various types of outdoor or indoor bulbs for your Ohio home.


Recessed fixtures are any indoor lights fully contained inside floors, walls, or ceilings. Although this wording might sound complex or fancy, it’s essentially just the interior design way of describing the fixtures that lay flush with your ceiling or walls. On the other hand, however, the fixtures that protrude from floors, walls, or the ceiling aren’t recessed.


If you use fixtures in your ceiling, then you’re using what’s known as ambient lighting. This is one of the three major types of indoor lighting. All sorts of styles and fixtures are included in this one. For example, ambient lighting is a floor lamp that’s powerful enough to brighten an entire room. It produces a base layer of soft or bright white that’s off-white or with yellow hues for your room, so you can build on that light with the other two major types of light fixtures, which include task lighting and accent lighting.


The pre-installed fixtures in your home aren’t the only way you’re able to direct light from your ceiling toward your floors. Track lights protrude from and mount to the top. They point directly downward, so you can use them to illuminate hallways or the centers of rooms. Track lighting has a high-class and artistic feel. However, you still need an electrician to help you install them properly.


If you need a consistent, reliable foundation for your indoor lighting design, install a ceiling light fixture. We aren’t merely referring to the standard recessed ceiling fixtures, however. We are talking about chandeliers and pendants, which you mount close to your ceiling. We are also talking about low-hanging lights. Without the much-needed lighting cornerstone that ceiling lights offer, your indoor space might be imperfectly lit, whether your living room, bedroom, or kitchen. Check out our ceiling fan services.
